't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

and perhaps dirty politics. to give you a sense of it p president obama cleaned romney's clock when it comes to electoral votes. now maybe we should just go with the popular vote which i this is fairer and president obama's margin of victor of popular column is larger than the popular vote over all. but if you did the republican plan, even though president obama won the popular vote by 5 million and currently won over by 120 votes in the electoral college. in the republican fan the republican candidate would woo have been. is this so controversy that even some republicans are saying, well it seems a little embarrassing. here is pat mullin in virginia who said changing the electoral college rules in vow is not at all on my list of priorities. people get mad when you try to subvert democracy and have someone who did not win the popular vote become the president, not that that would ever happen in a presidential election or anything. but reince priebus thinks, hmm we can't seem to win elections otherwise. all of a sudden it's an interesting idea to him. it's something that a lot of states that

't the first time when they controlled everything. >> yeah, there's a reason that president obama almost never mentioned the words climate change and cap and trade during the the campaign, paul, because they're political losers, they're big tax increases on workers, on union workers, on manufacturing workers, and so, the democrats have avoided that issue now that they've won this election, they've sort of sprung it on people and i don't believe the votes are there in the united states senate or the house to pass anything like the carbon tax, or the democrats are talking an energy tax, like a gasoline tax, kim is right. if they're going to do this, through the regulatory angle and outlaw in that way. >> paul: but then, james, why mention it so prominently, or was this sort after bait and switch for the environmentalists and mention it and in policy terms don't. >> there may be some bait and switch, but this is key. if he doesn't need to get anything through the congress, like the potomac swatch-- >> kim strassel. >> so well. they think that they have a court decision a few years empowers them t

. >> the political argument that is looking at marco rubio. we know it's the number you see on the screen. obama over romney over latino voters. you have the growing latino areas. i wonder if there is a second argument that republicans are considering or ought to consider. that is how they are toned on this and defined the rhetoric and affects non-latino voters. how much do you think this hurt the republican party's brain that it took this long to get to this point on this issue? >> well, the argument is also that when you want compassionate conservatism, it's not just the target group, but also for john latinos. the fiscal conservative who is may not love or hate latinos, but they cringe at the rhetoric. i agree that this is not just an issue about latinos, but softening the general image of the republican party. it's gone so far to the right with the peak of the 2010 tea party movement, that they try to buff the edges out. >> the first thing is border security. with enforcement promises never materialized, that is untrue. the 2007 bill asked for several things that we are super serving or doing mea

: there are few people we think we know more about than president barack obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton, and everyone has an opinion-- about their politics, their marriages, and a rivalry that is one of the richest in american history. on friday we had the opportunity to sit down with the two of them side by side. the white house offered us 30 minutes, barely enough time to scratch the surface of their complicated personal and professional relationship, let alone discuss their policies on iran and israel, russia and china, egypt and libya. there has been much speculation about their evolution from bitter opponents to partners in the corridors of power and the motivation for doing this interview. now you can be the judge. this is very improbable. this is not an interview i ever expected to be doing. but i understand, mr. president, this was your idea. why did you want to do this together, a joint interview? >> obama: well, the main thing is, i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of sta
